Their vast carelessness

In a recent column, Maureen Dowd alludes to a Great Gatsby quote which so well describes the Clinton's and the plutocracy in general. From Chapter 9 of The Great Gatsby. Such a great description of all the moral narcissists and virtue signalers among the clerisy and chattering classes. The Tom and Daisy Buchanans of the world.
I couldn't forgive him or like him, but I saw that what he had done was, to him, entirely justified. It was all very careless and confused. They were careless people, Tom and Daisy – they smashed up things and creatures and then retreated back into their money or their vast carelessness, or whatever it was that kept them together and let other people clean up the mess they had made.
